ZombiU Live Action Video Shows Multiplayer Battle

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

All hail the Zombie King

Halloween may be gone for the year, but one particular Wii U game will be playing on the fact that, for many of us, it's the time of year with long, dark nights. ZombiU is one of the most eagerly anticipated Wii U launch titles, with early impressions emphasizing the complexities and difficulties it'll offer, as well as its extensive use of the GamePad controller. It's a game targeting committed gamers — dare we say hardcore — and Nintendo and Ubisoft have put a lot of effort into spreading the word.

The latest video from Ubisoft, meanwhile, opts to demonstrate one of the multiplayer modes, using a mix of live-action and in-game footage. One player is the King of the Zombies, which is a rather grand title, and uses the GamePad to spawn zombies around a map. The other player has the misfortune of a rather dull name, The Survivor, and has to desperately fight off the zombie hordes.

You can see what it's all about in the rather stylish trailer below. Bear in mind that this is for ZombiU, after all, so there's some simulated gore and killing of zombies.

@Savino me too, but imagine if it is red steel controls rather than the MoH or CoD ones that came along later on with the wii!

Killing zombie bobbies is pretty much living the English drea,

@BlackFira- When your friends die, they will show up in your game as a zombie. Also you can leave notes and whatnot on the wall for friends. Both of these are single player features that use the internet.

@Master_Ryno: It depends what parts of London you travel down to. Particularly places like Peckham, Pumstead and Tower Hamlets and others in East/South London tend to be like that, but you have spots like this all over the city.

As much as I'm not very fond of the WiiU yet, I played a demo of ZombiiU multiplayer and it was the coolest thing the WiiU had to offer overall; literally. Great unique use of the controller, cool gameplay. really fun.
